The Foothills mall was opened in 1982. During the 1990's the mall had many stores close down and new ones come in. now in the 2010's the mall is going through hard times, because of another mall that opened 15 minutes away in the town of Marana. This is because most of the business that were in the Foothills mall moved to the newer mall. The malls most prominent stores and places are Barnes & Noble, Ross , a movie theater, and its food court.
